    Default I'm rebuilding a '52 E

    I'm rebuilding a '52 Elgin model 571.58201 and I'm having trouble removing the rotator cover over the magneto. I've removed the pull-start mechanism via nut and lock washer but I'm not sure whether the cover is also threaded on or if it just pops off the top and I need a wheel puller to remove it. Does anyone out there know or better yet have an engine schematic?

    Default i take the nut off the flywhee

    i take the nut off the flywheel and give it a slight tap with a mallet and mine pops up and off. some people have to use a puller but if your gentle it might pop off so you can get to the magneto.
